If you are seeking the help of a career advisor, it's a good idea to start by asking general questions, then get more specific. For example, if you're at a college or university, you might want to start by asking how you can best apply your major. You could also ask questions about building your resume to look as strong as possible, or about what networking opportunities to keep an eye out for.
It's smart to ask about the challenges you're likely to face in the new role. You can also ask what a strong employee in their company looks like, and also what the day-to-day responsibilities for an average employee look like. Appearing curious about the role, committed in performing it well, and serious about your interest in the company is helpful when in an interview.
Looking for jobs can be different depending on the field you're entering. However, job posting aggregators like Indeed, LinkedIn, and ZipRecruiter are all useful tools. If you're interested in a company in particular, you may want to bookmark their jobs page to check in every once in a while and see whether they have new openings. Networking with professionals in your field may also help you become aware of jobs that you otherwise would not be.
A career plan is a set of practical steps you intend to take to get where you want in your career. It can be a helpful way for you to organize your thoughts, and better understand the steps you need to take in planning your career long-term. You can start by outlining your skills, experience, and goals to get a sense of what your career plan might look like.
